I Didn’t Expect Idle Nigerians To Not Rant During The Buhari/Pigeons Episode – Femi Adesina

The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has come out to give reasons why pigeons did not fly during the Armed Forces Remembrance Day ceremony.

He recently revealed this via his article titled: “Reflections from a wreath-laying ceremony,” and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, President Buhari opened the cage, held the pigeons, some hesitated, and some flew immediately, so there was nothing really extraordinary in what happened.

Femi added that he did not expect idle Nigerians to see it as a normal occurrence though, and of course they wailed like wailing wailers.

His words, “President Buhari opened the cage that held the pigeons, about a score or so. One hesitated, then flew, followed by another.”

“The others temporized a bit. And then, two, three minutes later, they all took to the sky. Nothing extraordinary in the development, you would think.”

“But not to the idle and indolent, most of who populate the social media. It was time to major in something minor, cavil, find fault unnecessarily. The pigeons didn’t fly, they refused to fly, it’s ominous, they wailed like wailing wailers.”

“And you began to wonder: are people this idle? Don’t they have productive things to do with their times? Are their minds so addled, and all they want to do is find faults against their President, ascribing spiritual connotations to a non-issue?”

“For their information: Muhammadu Buhari has no time for such frivolities. He just continues to serve the country with his heart and mind, trying to make a difference in security, economy, and anti-corruption. And he will get there, by the grace of God. But if they don’t change, the wailers will be losers, standing small.”
